We tend to think of prayer, in spite of ourselves, in terms of profit and loss.
What shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul.
We can only know God well when we know our own sin. And those who have known God without knowing their wretchedness have not glorified Him but have glorified themselves.
God's house must be clean, otherwise, God will just run away.
We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls.
The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.
Man will only become better when you make him see what he is like.
God is a comedian playing to an audience that is too afraid to laugh.
I simply can't build my hopes on a foundation of confusion, misery and death ... I think. peace and tranquillity will return again.
I have been a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teaching of my Soul.
Prayer is a turning to God.
When a woman rises up in glory, her energy is magnetic and her sense of possibility contagious.
You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.
Devotion does not mean only chanting praise and singing glory of God, nor fasting and offerings made to God. Devotion is a specific attitude towards life and existence.
God is a concept by which we measure our pain.
In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.
On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it.
Faith without doubt is addiction
Doubt everything. Find your own light.
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where these is hatred, let me sow love.
How can the heart travel to God, when it is chained by its desires?
